    Just bought a iPad Mini 3 yesterday and I'm thinking of switching to iPad air 2. It feels little small coming from aniPad1. Does anyone felt the same way and switched over between these two devices? thanks

    Hi Hunter1 - this is a personal decision based on your needs - make a list of the top 10 or so things that you do on the iPad, then decide which screen size best fits those needs and tally up the score. For myself, I do a lot of reading on the iPad (both purchased books & magazines) - the iPad Mini would not suit my needs for these purposes (have old eyes) - wife owns the Mini and gave up on magazines. I just bought a new iPad (Air 2) w/ retina screen - it's thinner and lighter than my old iPad 2 - quite pleased so far after a week. Let us know what your tally shows - :) Dave

    Ive been using ipad1 and I thought I try the Mini but it seems to be small for my comfort. My eyes are not as sharp as we'll,

    I made the switched with a silver color , wanted gold but none in stock. I'm much happier with the Air 2.

    It's always better and more enjoyable to use a device you're fully comfortable with.

    So true, this one should last for quite a while. My iPad1 lasted 4 years.

    I was debating and was going to go with the Mini from an iPad 4.....
    After trying it for a long time at the Apple store I decided to go with the Air 2.

    Just seems like I always had to enlarge the screen to see/do what I wanted.
    The Air 2 is thinner/smaller than the iPad 4 and seems much more comfortable to use.

    You'll love it IMHO.....

    Also note the new air 2 is slightly lighter than the air one, I find movies more enjoyable and reading text easier
